Support Dobek during Street Retreat in Washington DC, May 22-26

Support Dobek during Street Retreat in Washington DC, May 22-26

Street Retreats were started by Bernie Glassman Roshi and his Peacemaker movement. We will live together with homeless people on streets of Washington DC for 5 days.

The retreat is free. However, I’m obliged to organize a group of supporters who can help me raise $500 which will go towards charity. Asking for alms is meant to help us witness and understand the lives of people living on the street. Traditionally, Buddhist monks used to support themselves in this way. In fact, it is a great practice of generosity and gratitude thanks to which we can observe what happens with our minds when we ask, give or receive.

Many roads were closed to prevent looting. My friend told me that his neighbor had to chase some looters with his pistol.
